A Gaussian process functional regression model is proposed for the analysis of batch data. Covariance structure and mean structure are considered simultaneously, with the covariance structure modelled by a Gaussian process regression model and the mean structure modelled by a functional regression model. The model allows the inclusion of covariates in both the covariance structure and the mean structure. It models the nonlinear relationship between a functional output variable and a set of functional and non-functional covariates. Several applications and simulation studies are reported and show that the method provides very good results for curve fitting and prediction.
